The dogs thoroughly enjoyed it and the gorgeous weather made things perfect!
Dexter was soon off the lead and I'm delighted to say that the whistle still has the magic power of recall. Meanwhile frost on the ground was no deterrent for more swimming for one young dog. Brook was not content with a mear splash - water had to be over her back or it wasn't worth the effort!
No water for Robbie though - more a game of chase. He socialises really well with the others.
I had Paul's dogs Roma and Jaffa with me. Jaffa will soon be 12 yrs old but it's quite clear she's no idea of time - you only have to see her sprint!
He bought her from Weatheral as a rescue dog when she was only 7mths old, having been picked up on the streets of Carlisle. He maintains she's the best dog he's ever had and I can understand why (although she does have some annoying habits!!!).
As for Roma! Ask any dog who keeps order in the house and they won't say ME they'll say Roma. A quick snap here or there is soon given to any dog if she feels things are getting too much for her. The "guilty" dog gets the message and calms down!
But don't worry - they're only air bites.......she just likes to display her true TERRORier traits! (sorry)
